VFTOVP(1)                                                            VFTOVP(1)



NAME
       vftovp - convert virtual font (vf) files to virtual property lists (vpl)

SYNOPSIS
       vftovp [ -charcode-format=format ] [ -verbose ] vf_name[.vf] tfm_name[.tfm] [ vpl_name[.vpl] ]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page  is  not  meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this version of TeX can be
       found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The vftovp program translates a (program-oriented) virtual font file and its accompanying TeX font metric  file
       to  a (human-oriented) property list file.  Thus, the virtual font can be edited, and its exact contents can be
       displayed mnemonically.  It also serves as a VF-file validating program; if no error messages  are  given,  the
       input files are correct.

       The filenames are extended with the appropriate extension if necessary.

OPTIONS
       The  argument format to -charcode-format specifies how character codes are output in the VPL file.  By default,
       only letters and digits are output using the C integer code (i.e., in ASCII); the others are output  in  octal.
       (Unless  the  font's  coding  scheme starts with TeX math sy or TeX math ex, when all are output in octal.)  If
       format is ascii, all character codes that correspond to graphic characters, besides the left and  right  paren-
       theses, are output in ASCII.  On the other hand, if format is octal, all character codes are output in octal.

       Without  the  -verbose  option, vftovp operates silently.  With it, a banner and progress report are printed on
       stdout.

ENVIRONMENT
       vftovp looks for vf_name using the environment variable VFFONTS.  If that is not set, it uses the variable TEX-
       FONTS.  If that is not set, it uses the system default.

       See tex(1) for the details of the searching.

AUTHORS
       Donald  E.  Knuth  wrote  the  program,  based  in  part  on an idea of David Fuchs, starting with the code for
       tftopl(1).  Karl Berry adapted it for compilation with web2c.
